The objective of the International Steering Committee (ISC) is on the one hand to provide external points of view on the project’s work plan so it brings maximum outcomes to the e-infrastructure aspects of the project and, on the other hand, to serve as a key dissemination channel for project outcomes to facilitate project exploitation and impact..
The AGINFRA+ ISC members are in charge of:
Proposing changes to the direction of the project in line with stakeholder and end-user priorities for maximising the exploitation and mutual benefits from the uptake of the roadmap to be developed within the project;
Participating to the mapping exercise by completing the first ecosystem map;
Proposing changes to the direction of the project in line with stakeholder and end-user priorities for maximizing the exploitation of projects’ results
Advising the project board on changes in societal and end-user priorities that may impact the project objectives and expected impacts;
Reviewing progress of the project annually (based on deliverables, periodic reports and annual meetings);
Supporting dissemination of project results in their respective institutions.
The ISC gathers key international experts in agriculture science and e-infrastructures implementation that ensure the scientific relevance of project orientations throughout its lifetime, as well as other actors engaged in the development of interoperable e-infrastructures in agriculture from the public as well as from the private sector
The selected AGINFRA+ Use Cases will illustrate the benefits of applying the Science as a Service approach to pressing research questions from the corresponding research communities.
AGROCLIMATIC AND ECONOMIC MODELLING
This community focuses on use cases aim to support the workflow of researchers, intermediaries and business analysts working on crop modelling, crop phenology estimation and yield forecasting, as well as related activities in the area of policy and decision support in food security, farm management advice and related activities.
This community focuses on use cases to support scientists in the multidisciplinary field of risk assessment and emerging risk identification as there is currently a strong need to create new technology-supported solutions that facilitate the knowledge integration processes relevant for these tasks.
This community focuses on use cases related to the high-throughput phenotyping large amount of data which need to be analyzed immediately for decision making. This aims to support phenomics researchers to select plant species and varieties which are the most adapted to specific environments and to global changes.
